"Even my idol? Hmmmm I see. Understandable. Smh," Gyan posted on Twitter with a caption from the story.

Ronaldo is revered around the world following his exploits during his playing days. The 'El Phenomenon' as he is affectionately called won the World Cup twice, and was three times world player of the year.

The 46-year-old enjoyed a glittering career, winning several titles with Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Gyan remains a legendary figure on the continent. He holds the record for the most goals by an African team at the World Cup.

The former Sunderland player is Ghana's all-time top scorer with 51 goals.

Kaka reveals how Brazil see Ronaldo

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that former AC Milan and Real Madrid superstar Kaka recently claimed Ronaldo is seen as a 'fat man walking down the street' by his fellow Brazilians.

Ronaldo Nazario de Lima is considered one of the best forwards in the history of the game and he has the unique stat of having won two World Cups, in 1994 and 2002.

But apparently, R9's legendary status does not mean much to the people of his country, according to his former teammate Kaka.

Gyan features in SuperSport fun game

Asamoah Gyan returned to the pitch for the first time in months after featuring for SuperSport in a fun game against legends of Kaizer Chiefs.

The Ghana legend is in South Africa working as a pundit on SuperSport TV for the World Cup currently ongoing in Qatar. Gyan missed the tournament after failing to make the Black Stars squad.

However, the 37-year-old showed his quality after joining a group of pundits on SuperSport TV to play against Kaizer Chiefs legends.
